It's difficult to get past HUNTING RIGHTS in this given his debut fourth to Elnadancer in soft ground at Ayr is easily the best form on offer. Mark Johnston's colt is likely to start a short price to open his account here and should have little trouble in doing so. Zain Spirit faded quickly in the closing stages of his debut at Kempton but looks likely to finish closer with that run under his belt while Buxted's Choice and Holding Fast have yet to show any worthwhile form.
